Nexus is, at its heart, an engineering company. We are enabling trusted identities for people and things, securing society and taking responsibility for the digitized world that’s emerging. We hire people with a broad set of technical skills (and from a wide variety of backgrounds) who want to make an impact on the journey we are on. Right now, we are looking for an Architect to help us continue to level up our Infrastructure Services.
We need some help! We have these really cool products, competent people and dedicated leaders. We have already built our infrastructure upon infrastructure as code, and it’s time to take this to the next level. You will have great freedom in the HOW but we have a very clear WHAT.
The guy who is hiring, is Henrik Hjelm, leader of our Infrastructure services team (and a really good boss, HR is adding). This position is in our HQ at Telefonplan in southern Stockholm, but we are a global organization, and you will work with teams in Europe and India.
What will you be doing at Nexus?
You will be the one driving the architectural roadmap for our infrastructure design and to anchor this way of working in the organization. We are a product company, and your mission is to ensure our ten development teams and our external needs are met within your platforms. Sometimes it’s hard to change how we are used to working, and this is something we need to do together!
We have started this journey, but we need more structure, more focus and more commitment going forward. In this role, you will be the technical platform owner of our SaaS platforms, managing everything that comes with it. The team has a dedicated SDM that you will work with for the customer facing parts, but we do encourage meeting, speaking and interacting with our customers.
You will also be part of the day-to-day Ops work in the Infra team. We are strong believers in all for one and one for all; we help each other out! On call might be part of this position.
Who are you?
There is no place like 127.0.0.1, but we also like to work and have fun together, so we think that you are a team player. You could have acquired your expertise in many ways, but let’s face it, there are two main paths here. Either you are an old school sys admin/infra engineer who has turned to infra coding or you are a coder who has realized that everything is just a matter of capacity in the end and learned the ancient wisdom of infrastructure as the one true, pure form of enlightenment. Either way, you need to be proficient in both arenas.
You should have hands-on experience with Terraform, at least a couple of years, and you will be the go-to-person for that technology. A must have is that you have been responsible for cloud-based architecture before.
Other tech we use, and we hope/think you are comfortable with, are Ansible, Azure DevOps and Azure in general (or at least some of the other big cloud services out there), as well as Kubernetes clustering and orchestration. We envision that you have an end-to-end perspective in everything you do.
We also think you have worked in a development-heavy organization before. If this within betting, fintech or security even better. Then you know about the importance of governance models, patching discipline, and the need for proper documentation.
We are a global organisation and it's important that you write and speak English unhindered.
Our client’s security is very important to us; therefore, this role will require a background check.
